Our Annual Book Sale , 2017

On Saturday , 11th March ,2017 the Dundee Public Library in conjunction with Friends of The Library Dundee Inc hosted their Annual Book Sale at the Dundee Community Center , Dundee , Florida. The event was a resounding success and we were able to raise in excess of $550.00, which will go towards the funding of FOL’s (Friends of The Library) Summer Reading Program and other events we plan to stage over the course of this calendar year. The staff and volunteers of the Dundee Public Library and Friends of The Library would like to thank all of the attendees and patrons for their warm generosity and donations made in this effort ! Without your ongoing support, none of this would at all be possible and we will endeavor to continue to have a presence and raise our profile within community , while rewarding the children who will be able to benefit from this all.

Organized to promote the great work done by our first responders , we had invited guests, members from the Polk County Sheriff’s Department, Florida Forestry Division , a local school crossing guard , Eric Bond. Also on hand were Smokey The Bear and McGruff The Crime Dog, as the kids got to meet and greet these individuals. The officers from each of these services gave a brief speech as to what their jobs entailed and how they interact with the public as part of their day-to-day duties.
